***Kazakhstan v Scotland Official Match Thread***

Recommended Posts

iantjambo

Here we go again. First of our Euro qualifying double header.

We really should be taking full points from our opening two games, but it Is Scotland we’re talking about.

We’re coming off the back of two good wins in the Nations League, so confidence should be high.

 

Robertson and Tierney both miss out but could be fit for Sunday’s game. Both Ryan Fraser and Callum Paterson won’t be risked on Kazakhstan’s artificial pitch.

 

3 o clock kick off

Heard there's doubts over McKenna and Burkes fitness as well, could be a really random lineup but surely enough to beat Kazakhstan

Looking at the full Kazakhstan squad, they've only scored a total of 27 international goals between them.

 

Then I looked at the Scotland squad, who've scored a total of 9 goals between them. Not great.

 

SURELY we can add to this sad total over the next 2 games.

Artificial pitches are bad enough at SPFL level but ffs internationals?

 

I cant believe this is even allowed!

Early finish today and home to watch this. No idea why because I have no great expectations for this game. The squad doesn’t fill me with any great optimism for these two games. 

 

Going for a sluggish Heartsesque 1-0 win for Scotland. Callum McGregor with the goal late late on

If they are allowed anywhere for internationals, Nursultan/Astana has a very good shout considering the extreme climate.

As far as TA trips go, this one will be particularly testing timing to their convivial reputation with locals. It’s being held on the local equivalent of New Year’s Day and their will be massive security focus on any gatherings after the president of 30-odd years unexpectedly resigned.

If it was a million pound drop situation I’d be putting more money on Kazakhstan and the draw than I would on Scotland.

MLS is a developing league which is now attracting global attention and they use artificial surfaces.

I'm concerned about the amount of players missing, although Kazakhstan are pretty shite they've drew with Poland, Romania and Iceland in recent times, could be a tricky one for us like.

Still, whatever the score I'm sure it'll be an improvement on what I've seen from Hearts over the past few months, McLeish might actually encourage them to pass the ball and hit a few shots.

With the reported doubts taken into account we're probably looking at:

 

Bain

 

O'Donnell 

Souttar 

Bates

Shinnie 

 

McGregor 

Armstrong 

McGinn

 

Forrest 

McBurnie 

Russell

 

With McTominay, Mclaughlin, Kelly, Palmer, Findlay, Morgan and McNulty available from the bench

 

Forrest has 26 caps, Armstrong has 13 and McGinn has 11. The rest have under 10

Looks about right. I suspect McTominay will start though.

Pisses me off that Scotland games are always on Sky. I know they have the rights but internationals should be on regional TV.

England games are always on ITV ?

Bonus points for getting a dig in at Hearts on a Scotland match thread. 

Kids, proof that Anything is possible if you try hard enough!

 

And I wouldn't bet on that improvement ?

 

Game is not a gimme, although the celtic / ex celtic spine seems to do well in these games and with that line up we have a bit creativity so I'll go a narrow win for us. 

 

2-1.

 

Hopefully Souttar plays a blinder.

A team 116th in the world. I predict just the 1 goal defeat for us. I'd rather have Levein than Mcleish and **** me that speaks volumes.

If we dont get maximum points from the next 2 games, McLeish has to go! 

 

McLeish and that incoherent imbecile Peter Grant shouldn't be anywhere near the Scotland job!

 

I'm positive though, taking a Scotland win ?

Gordon, McGregor, Archer, Brown, Paterson, Griffiths, Tierney , Robertson, Fletcher, Naismith, Mulgrew, Fraser,Christie, Bannan,  that’s 14 players, who if available, would have likely started today. Not sure if our B team will be good enough even against the team ranked 116 in the world.

Eck has at least one hand tied behind his back for today’s game. Having to play  his B/C team so doubt we will win. Hope I’m wrong.

The euros and the world cup are my favourite tournaments to watch. 11 men playing for their country, all egos are left at home. 

I'm excited for this campaign and I think we have a decent squad. 

There are those who have no faith in the manager but we should get behind him whilst he is in charge. 

2-0 to Scotland.

great input into glesga Scotland by the infirm, A & B team. I take it scott brown didn't find this one glamorous enough to make a come back and Tierney has started the excuses.

 

what a sham of a national team we have, they really inspire nationalism with their whole heartedness to the cause, as long as it doest interfere with an uglies derby or important game.

I'm not sure Gordon, McGregor AND Archer would have played, but hey. Eck shouldn't be near the post but he doesn't have Strachan's preference for any bench-warning English League 1 bloke whose granny visited Gretna Green once over anyone with a non-OF Scottish team.

 

That said, today I see a shaky 1-0 Scotland lead until Kazakh equalise in injury time, Eck afterwards talking about 'lots of positives'.

 

Eedjit that I am, I've bought a season for the home qualifiers.
